6:46 pm
enthusiast. this outdoes monterey as far as i'm concerned. >> this year's line-up features grammy winners, classic jazz pioneers and some hot salsa from all over the world. some mighty fine weather, too, in san jose where they had readings in the 70s today. and it will be fairly mild for the remainder of the weekend, too. let's check san jose. plenty of blue down there with fog and low clouds creeping in at the shoreline but right now sunny in san jose and over inland and bay shoreline. concord 72. san francisco 58. santa rosa 71. san jose 70. livermore 72. here's how we look by 8:00 tonight. inland cooling into the upper 60s around the bay in the low 60s. and there's a lot of fog and low clouds at the shoreline. by tomorrow afternoon pretty much an encore performance mostly sunny skies inland with temperatures in the mid-80s. and around the bay we'll be in the upper 70s and at the coast the upper 60s. here's what's happening. low pressure forms off oregon
6:47 pm
and that's going to deepen the -- maintains the marine layer along the shoreline. and tomorrow morning we'll get drizzle. we'll have some tonight, too, at the coast but inland looks good after we dispense with the low clouds. the low forms, the coastline is cool, we remain nice and sunny inland. in fact, it's going to hopefully be clear enough tomorrow night so that we will see the second of three "supermoons." in fact, tomorrow it happens tomorrow morning, actually, tomorrow morning our time the moon will be at its closest approach to earth. it will be the brightest full moon by the time it rises at sunset tomorrow night. would you really notice a difference between the typical full moon and this full moon? the answer, ladies and gentlemen, is no. it's only 8% larger than a typical full moon but nevertheless it's cool and you can go to and read more about tomorrow's "supermoon." but you'll be a little confused
6:48 pm
unless you're into this stuff because the full moon tomorrow is at about 10:30 a.m. tomorrow morning at pacific time. can we see it at 10:30 in the morning? yes, if you drill a hole through the earth and look to europe, then you can see it. you will have to wait until sunset to see the full moon rising. a few hours past "supermoon" and it will be a beautiful sight but again you won't be able to tell the difference. i'm just being honest. low clouds along the shoreline. sunshine inland for much of the day tomorrow. by the shoreline, you will see this. fog and low clouds at the golden gate bridge. we'll go with "stratus quo." cool and breezy at the coast, seasonal temperatures. hurricane julio powers toward hawaii, it was a cat-3 but looks like it's going to miss it as a cat-2 and the path of julio is going to have it skirt the island. they will only pick up the surf and some rain. but it will not sustain a direct hit. julio is heading out of the area. for a little bit of a warmup for us too much, inland in the mid-80s, around the beach in the 60s. we'll take that all the way
6:49 pm
through next weekend, temperatures don't change much this week. sky turbulence don't change much. so we are going to go with "stratus quo," the usual low clouds in the morning and sunshine in the afternoon. and i think that adequately sums it up. we'll have more on the "supermoon" tomorrow. >> thank you. not to be missed, thanks, brian. vern, not to be missed your sports segment coming up. >> betty, thanks for the introduction. hey, we have two former warriors. all right. entering the basketball hall of fame, and a wild day at the pga championship including wading in the water. ,, a ,,
